I love Pk the characters was cute especially Hyun Joong but i would go with ISWAK it stretched out the relationship and how both characters developed while Pk seemed rushed.

Playful Kiss is a major let down.

The only thing I liked about it is Kim Hyun Joong oppa. If he wasn't cast as the main actor, then I wouldn't have a reason to finish that lousy drama.

ISWAK wins.

To start off, I've watched both dramas: ISWAK (1&2) and Playful Kiss (well I have a couple more episodes to go..)

ISWAK: I felt that it was.. dragged out. To be honest, I was so bothered by Ariel Lin's role that I almost gave up the drama completely. I mean.. it was too pathetic, you know? And Joe Cheng's character was just too.. emotionless. It took some time to feel the love. But I wasn't about to leave a drama unfinished, so I finished it. ISWAK was great. I think the ending was so cute and romantic that it made me, personally, forget how much I disliked the drama. It lessened the annoyance, you can say.

They Kiss Again: Now that was worth it. (: Although it still contained the occasional "I-can't-believe-they're-even-together" or "you-cannot-be-serious" and also the "someone-kill-(certain character's name here)-now", the whole thing was just WORTH IT. Much more love and chemistry and action, emotion-wise.
Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin just had THE CHEMISTRY needed. You can't help but fall in love with how much they've fallen in love with each other. ((:

Playful Kiss: Less dragged out and less annoyance(A GOOD THING). I just annoyed myself because I watched it after ISWAK and TKA, so I was bored of seeing somewhat the same scenes I saw already. Not all scenes, which was a good thing, not that I expected them to copy ISWAK. I liked it. Kim Hyun Joong was a big part of the love for this drama as the others have been saying. Which I do agree for the most part. I didn't watch it because of him though. (:
Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min did a great job as well. They were cute together and made the drama very like-able. Not as much chemistry as Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin, sadly. But kudos to them!


So to sum it up... They are both great dramas. Loved watching them. But I loved ISWAK/TKA more than Playful Kiss. Primarily because of the chemistry between the actors; JC and AL had LOVE. Also, the added season (TKA) really boosted the Taiwanese version overall. ((:

Personally I prefer ISWAK.
I thought how the whole drama was done just felt better for ISWAK. Playful Kiss just didn't feel right for me, it almost made me feel like it was a chore to finish watching it.

As much as I dislike Ariel Lin, ISWAK was way better!

Playful kiss was just so bland... ISWAK portrayed the drama better

I watched both of the remakes and would have to say I prefer Playful Kiss, only because I have a personal bias toward Ariel Lin. I found her character in the drama so annoying; however, I thought Joe Cheng did a better job in the Taiwanese remake than Kim Hyung Joong did in the Korean one. If I were not limited by the two options, my favorite version of this story would definitely be the Japanese original: Itazura na Kiss!
